Haiti February 2013
Trip to Haiti to visit several Partners in Health facilities as well as just wander about a bit and see where the country stood several years after the earthquake. Many of the people, as you can see from these photos, are desperately poor. In Port au Prince, as well as many other cities, there is a constant level of fine limestone dust, "poussiere," in the air, from the constructions, from the open face limestone quarries, and from the beat of traffic on unpaved roads. In addition, there are also the fumes from the charcoal grills which most of the Haitian poor use to cook their food.
